Hello, I am having a problem with my spa

it is 1500 litres

i was unable to put enough chlorine in to maintain a sanitizer level.

I was usind lithium chlorinating granules, i wound up putting 1000 Grams in within 3 days and still no residual.

i swithced to stabilized dichlor fast disolve tabs, used an entire bottle and no luck

i drained the tub and started over

i am still not able to maintain a residual for more that a few hours regardless of how much chlorine i put in

this is all without any bather usage

it is all very strange, i have never had a problem before. the pool store says that i shoulodnt need to put more than one little puck per day in on avergae and it should hold a residual even for 2 days with no use.

i have used a shock treatment twice since refilling it and still no joy!

today i have put 12 tabs in and a shock, and i fully expect the level to go to zero by night fall and without any use

i should alos note that my spa is in good balance and has perfect looking water and has no foaming

the only thing i can think of is that there is some bacteria in the pipes that is consuming my sanitizer, but this much????

p.s. i use well water this time 50% softened and 50% very hard

any thoughts??
